My project is the interior of a built-in fish tank cabinet/canopy. High humidity, occasional splashes of water, salt get the idea. There will be some air flow within but otherwise its sealed up pretty well to keep light from escaping.

My contractor painted the exterior grade wood with 2 layers of Kilz2 primer, and then 2 layers of Behr interior grade black enamel.

I've decided to change the color to white (for lighting reasons) so I figured to go with Behr's interior/exterior grade enamel for the added protection...

I know to do some sanding first, then add a Shellac primer, and then the new enamel paint. Are these the correct steps?

Will I have any issues down the road with peeling/cracking if I do this? I know there are other products I could've used (marine grade paint, etc) but the wife is pregnant and I wanted to stay safe. I'd rather not have to strip the entire thing and re-paint.

Thanks for any and all recommendations.
